    Still have to do the gold stripe yet. The hardest part was making that trim rubrail 17 feet long and attaching it to the canoe. IMG_0684.JPG and waiting for stem bands from Rollin.

    Do you have any photos of how you attached the rub rail? Thanks

    yes, I used #4 X 3/4 screws from the inside . I did every other rib. Though I've seen canoes where they screwed through every rib. Just takes some careful drilling. I used finish washers on the screws. I don't think they make finish washers that small . So I used very small grommet halves from sailrite.
